U are going to have to do the following, and u will need either concrete blocks or/and 6x6 lumber or some type of planks. If u have to purchase these items, keep them clean and in good shape and u can actually return them when done w/ the project.
Make a ramp with planks and concrete blocks, drive up (very carefully!) to get the ford up in the air, if u can't drive it, jack up one wheel at a time, placing blocks under the tires to raise it off the ground. U will have to place blocks under the jack also. PLEASE make sure the ford is well supported and safe to crawl around underneath while u remove the tank.

How to remove gas tank off 2001ford explorer

How to Install Fuel Pump E2296S in 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac

Although the link tittle is "how to install fuel pump", the video shows the steps to remove the fuel tank. First step is to drain the fuel tank of gas. You can do a search on the web " how to drain a fuel tank" If you do not have the car on a lift, and you are working on the ground. It's best to jack the car up and use jack stands. You will need a jack with a support to hold the fuel tank and lower it. A piece of wood about 2/3's the width of the tank placed between the jack and the tank will work. It is smoewhat of a tedious job so take you time.

Is it hard to change a fuel pump in a ford explorer 2003 4lt V6?

no its not too hard if you have some mechanical ability. What you have to do is lower down your gas tank, once it is low enough you undo the lines and wiring that are going into the sending unit. Then you can pull the tank out and remove the sending unit. Your fuel pump is attached to that. Remove and replace it then reverse the removal procedure and you will be on your way again.

How difficult is it to replace the fuel pump on a 1998 ford explorer

it is in the fuel tank. you have to disconnect the fuel inlet hose at the tank, 2 tank strap bolts while supporting the tank with a jack. then use the jack to lower it enough to reach up and remove the "quick disconnect" fuel lines from the sending unit/pump asm. (special tool required) Then drop it down, remove the retaining ring from the top of the tank and pull the entire sending unit/fuel pump asm. straight up and out...reverse procedure to install the new asm.

How do I remove step by step the gas tank of a 1992 Ford Ranger XLT 4x2 xtra cab Auto 4.l

If you are needing to remove the gas tank to replace it, then you will need to empty the tank if you are able. You can buy a pump to siphon the gas for about ten dollars. Put a jack under the tank and jack it up to the tank just enough to barely put pressure on it. After that unbolt the two straps that hold it up. Remove the straps and slowly let the tank down. Try your best not to break the gas lines. Let it down far enough to see the gas pump. If it has a metal ring with little tabs on top of the pump. Take a hammer and a screwdriver and carefully tap on the tabs of the ring and move it until it releases the pump. If it is a snap ring holding the pump it, you will have to buy a special pair of pliers to get it out. A snap ring looks like a washer that has one gap in it, with two little holes on either side of the gap. If you are only wanting to remove the fuel pump, it is actually easier to remove the bed. To do that, undo the taillights and pull the wires through the bottom of the bed, and undo all of the bolts holding the bed down. If you do have to remove the tank, removing the bed will still make it easier, as well as greatly reducing the change of breaking a fuel line. good luck!
